FAQ

We are Darling Jadore -- a team of creatives selling original, modern instantly-downloadable knitting patterns and crochet patterns, offering free patterns and video tutorials, and more. The pattern designing portion of Darling Jadore is headed by the lead knitwear and crochetwear designer, Sierra, and Darling Jadore also consists of various test-knitters, pattern editors, technical assistants, and videographers who all help make us a success. We're located in Colorado.

Sierra is the head of the knitting and crochet design portion of Darling Jadore and she is responsible for designing every digital knitting pattern and crochet pattern offered, filming most of the video tutorials, and modeling all the finished items. Most of her designs begin as drawn sketches, which eventually turn into charts, schematics, and written text for the end product: a digital, instantly-downloadable knitting or crochet pattern file or video. Sierra has more than two decades worth of experience knitting and crocheting, has received training in sewing and embroidery, and also worked as a high fashion model in New York City, where her interest in fashion design deepened. As an independent knitwear designer, Sierra sells all of her designs under her own label, as well as offers licensing rights for her designs to some companies worldwide. As a licensed attorney, Sierra made a career change to follow her passion in knitwear design full-time in 2018.

All Darling Jadore knitting patterns and crochet patterns are instantly-downloadable digital files that are e-mailed immediately after payment is processed to the email address provided at checkout. All Darling Jadore knit and crochet pattern links never expire, meaning you can download the pattern at any time, and it will always be available to you. Additionally, all Darling Jadore digital patterns are "live", meaning that they are constantly being updated. Therefore, if any knit or crochet pattern you've purchased is updated (e.g., instructions changed, tutorial photos added, etc), you are sent an email notification and all you need to do is simply re-download your file for the updated version.

We take a modern approach to knitting patterns and crochet patterns. All of our knitting patterns and crochet patterns are premium digital files, and they are designed to look modern and sleek and we made sure they are exceptionally user-friendly, containing all the necessary elements of a knit or crochet pattern plus more. We at Darling Jadore are passionate about providing the highest quality digital knit and crochet patterns and videos to our customers, and to us, that means always updating versions of our patterns to make them the highest possible quality. Darling Jadore digital knitting patterns and crochet patterns include highly-detailed written instructions, a schematic with measurements, links to numerous video and photo tutorials for reference, links to all the exact materials used in the photographed design, numerous tips, and more. We also include all the basic elements of a knit and crochet pattern such as gauge, sizing information, yarn weight/category/WPI, information on adapting the pattern, abbreviations used, information on how to read our patterns and more. All Darling Jadore patterns are ad-free and printer-friendly. We offer patterns for the complete beginner to advanced fiber artists.

We also believe that our integrity as a knitwear and crochetwear design business sets us apart. To read more, click on "our integrity" to be guided below to the section on this topic.

The Premium Pattern Package option available for many of our digital knitting patterns and crochet patterns gives you access to a series of highly detailed video tutorials to guide you through knitting or crocheting the particular pattern you've purchased. As with all of our knit and crochet patterns, the premium packages are also being continually updated, with new videos being added when necessary. All of our Premium Pattern Packages come with 5+ videos to guide you through knitting or crocheting parts of the pattern that are most often the trickiest for knitters or crocheters. Some of the designs we offer are best suited for intermediate to advanced knitters, (e.g., top-down raglan sweaters), so we created the Premium Pattern Packages to help guide you through some of the complex techniques involved to make your knitting or crochet experience the easiest and most fun as possible. These videos also offer tips and tricks for knitting or crocheting future patterns with ease, and allow you to master new techniques and walk away confident knowing you will finish the pattern without any frustration. When you purchase a Premium Pattern Package, the information on where to access these videos (which are password protected) is emailed immediately after payment is processed. Just like with all Darling Jadore knit and crochet patterns, the link to download the premium packages and access the videos never expires. All videos provided in the Darling Jadore Premium Pattern Packages are ad-free and commercial free.

That's okay! We offer a free "Learn" page filled with lots of resources, including video tutorials, written text, and photo tutorials of basic knit stitches and techniques required by Darling Jadore knitting patterns. Master those techniques, and you can tackle almost any of our knitting patterns. We'll be rolling out a Learn page for crochet soon.

Our lead designer, Sierra, has many favorite tools and materials, but she tends to gravitate toward the same ones. After years of honing her craft, she's found what tools are the best: high-quality, long-lasting, and durable. We opened a Darling Jadore Amazon shop, where all the exact tools, materials, and yarn Sierra uses on a daily design basis are linked to for convenience. 


We design digital knitting patterns and crochet patterns for the novice all the way to advanced knitter and crocheters. Each individual listing will describe the method of construction for the design as well as indicate the skill level.

Yes! We like to post free knitting patterns and crochet patterns on our YouTube channel mostly, and usually also have an option to purchase the printable version of the knitting pattern or crochet pattern for convenience.

Yes! Whether you are a right-handed or a left-handed knitter or crocheter, all Darling Jadore knit and crochet patterns can be worked by both. Our patterns, however, are written with right-handed knitters and crocheters in mind, which is industry standard. We also offer left-handed knitting tutorials and crochet tutorials on our YouTube page. 

We work mostly by selling our original knitting patterns and crochet patterns on various platforms, such as this website, Ravelry, LoveKnitting, and Etsy. We also occasionally partner with brands and companies that we believe in and we will either design a knitting pattern or crochet patterns for them or sell licensing rights to one of our existing digital patterns. Sierra is also a contract knitwear designer with a few companies, some internationally and some in the United States, offering non-exclusive licensing rights to some of her knitting patterns and crochet patterns. However, we only work with companies and people that we truly believe in and who share a similar vision as us. Sometimes we are sponsored by brands for blog posts, but again, we only endorse brands and products that we truly believe in. If you are interested in working with us, you can contact us through our Contact Page or via email at design@darlingjadore.com.

Sierra, the lead designer of Darling Jadore, knits European style, also known as Continental style knitting. This means she hold her working yarn in the left hand while she knits, and the working yarn is kept to the left of the work. She discusses this method of knitting more in this section of the Learn page and also offers a video on our YouTube page demonstrating this technique.

If you've ever noticed a Darling Jadore knitting pattern or crochet pattern is no longer being offered for sale, it's because we had made a business decision to "retire" that particular pattern. Our team will arrive to that decision when we feel that a knit or crochet pattern or style of a design is outdated and/or no longer fits with the direction or style aesthetic that Darling Jadore wishes to move toward. We rarely retire patterns, and sometimes a knitting pattern or crochet pattern will simply be briefly discontinued because we are in the process of upgrading it.
